raised of £10,000 target by 192 supporters

    Weʼve raised £10,344 to bring a Judicial Review against the decision build a stand-alone Velindre centre on the green-fields of the Northern Meadows in Cardiff.

    Funded on Wednesday, 17th November 2021

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    I’m raising funds to bring a challenge by way of Judicial Review against the decision to proceed with plans to develop a new Velindre Cancer Centre on the greenfield site of the Northern Meadows in Whitchurch, Cardiff.

    Following a large donation from Save The Northern Meadows campaign, the aim now is to raise another £10k.

    The Welsh Government has failed to take into account material considerations and make sufficient independent enquiries:

    - when UHW2 was anticipated by CVUHB to be operational and the feasibility of including a co-located nVCC in that development

    - whether it’s possible to establish “an oncology footprint” at UHW and other hospitals, as recommended by the Nuffield Trust

    There should have been an independent clinical review led by the Senedd. This would have allowed proper consideration of the best available expert evidence and experiences to inform their decision.

    Instead we‘re being fobbed off with a clinical model that at least 163 clinicians have voiced serious concerns over; that is out of date; that will cause irreparable damage to endangered species, will destroy an area of nature reserve, meadow and woodland; that will decrease air quality for our kids and mean disadvantaged residents of Hollybush suffering years of building and they’ll no longer have a green space for wellbeing and exercise.

      As you may know, the first go at getting the JR and cost capping failed. But that’s quite normal. We have resubmitted both and will continue to fight. Thankyou all 💚🙏🏻

      Because of the charges Just Giving take, the funds raised and donated by STNM have been put into a safe account and this fundraiser is for the remainder of the £35k target.

      The SaveThe Northern Meadows fundraising account has been transferred over to me for the legal challenge as an individual, as i’ve been legally advised. Some bills have been paid on my behalf from the Save the northern meadows funds raised prior to this transfer. I will set out what those payments have been next week. My thanks to all who have and continue to fight this with me. xc
